Slow down in Bay Street – finally 2

imageYou may have noticed them…. You may have seen they are still covered up … But very shortly… Shoppers, residents and visitors to the Bay Street shopping strip are safer thanks to a reduction in the speed limit. Between 8am and midnight, the speed limit will be lowered from 60 to 40 km/h between Beach and Raglan streets. VicRoads expect the electronic signs for the reduced speed limit will beswitched on by the end of July.

The City of Port Phillip has lobbied VicRoads and the State Government for several years to reduce the speed limit in Bay Street. Its successful implementation is testament to the continued pressure and persistence of Council officers and the community.

The 40 km/h speed limit in Bay Street now falls in line with other shopping strips throughout Melbourne.Lowering speed reduces the likelihood and severity of crashes, especially to those most vulnerable, and encourages more walking and cycling, which enhances the vibrancy of the shopping strip.
